our meat is a cut above
The meat department at Lost River is quite a success story. When we opened it was projected that meat sales would be 5% of our overall sales. Due to your support meat sales generally constitute 12%, even 15% of total sales at times. Because of that success we have tried to expand our meat selections and inventory so that you can find what you need when you need it. Here's what you can count on.
Lost River carries Miller Amish Chicken from Northern Indiana, as a natural, free-range option. You can find this week's supply in the fresh meat case, plus fresh-frozen inventory in the freezer immediately behind the fresh case. The fresh-frozen chicken is placed in the freezer upon its arrival so that we can maintain almost a double inventory of all selections.
Be sure to check both areas.
Fischer Farms, Jasper: Fresh pork is brought to us weekly from Fischer Farms in Jasper. The pigs are raised on a neighbors land and they us antibiotics only when absolutely necessary.
Heritage Pork from Hall Farms, Orleans: Once you have a Hall's Family Farm heritage hog, you will never go back to conventional pork. All of Pat's hogs are raised GMO free and antibiotic free.
